was the idea that you had young san francisco students who were not japanese american, who were african american, who were a variety of folks who were aware of the experience and in some way were making it part of their own life, exactly what we're talking about. how do you make something that happened 65 years ago relevant to young people today so that there is something to be learned from it, that there is something that can be taken from it. that's what's so interesting about the exhibition. it's called if they came for us today -- am i saying it correctly? if they came for me today? which is a great, great title. that accomplishes that. because that's the key to me, how do you take an event that happened 65 years ago that was so important in terms of american history -- that's the thing, it's such a critical moment where the constitution was really tested. how do you keep it relevant in terms of its history to today and make sure that in some way it's related to cases like the aaron watata case or what happens after post-911? that to me is the tricky thing is how do you keep it aliv
er failing to comply with the san francisco housing code, having numerous notices of violations and orders of abatement on the two properties before you and the other property. just as a point of reference regarding the inability of this property owner to maintain her property, the property that is now before you on the 3300 block of 24th street had to have an emergency order issued. there was a fire at that property and someone was very, very devastatingly injured at that property. so, it is not the staff's opinion based on the information that you have detailed in the photographic evidence, the notices of violation and the chronologies that you have regarding both the noe street property and the 24th street property that are before you today, that these are cases that warrant additional time. the property owner has had sufficient time. as i indicated, allah suit was filed in march of this year. the city attorney is working with the property owner's attorney on this to get compliance. and with respect to the fact that a tremendous amount of time has occurred and we have the sam
for in san francisco as you well know, so the interest we have here in getting involved in that planning process and i know commissioner tan and commission near hyde were at that presentation at planning, we do want to get in as early as possible so that our permittees and our process sort of engages early on to make sure we don't have neighbor problems, and that we have healthy night life, so the planning commission didn't take any action at their meeting but the west soma community plan will continue to move along in the coming months and will eventually change the zoning that's been static in west soma for years, so staff will continue to keep you informed and if commissioner tan or hyde have anything to add, you can do it now or i can finish my report. >> i have a question just on this. so, this plan has been ten years in the making and this goes to you and you and possibly you, so this plan's been ten years in the making and they've come up with all of these recommendations. have they taken into consideration in your best guess changing times, like the city is coming back, we have l
in 1946 gave moore a foothold in the international arena. the exhibition moved on to chicago, san francisco, and australia. but moore's private life was far from glamorous. he'd found peace and a new home in the pastoral countryside of hertfordshire near the villagef ch hadham. it gave him space to work on larger pieces and to show em outdoors. his life was attuned to the optimism of a britain eager for peace and renewal after six years of war. the birth of a daughter in 1946 was followed by a series of works evoking family life. some critics began to detect a retreat from the groundbreaking pre-war work into sentimentality. in 1948, the london county council commissioned his first large work: the seven-foot-tall three standing figures of battersea park. despite moore's grinreputation, the more cutting-edge ttersea figures unsettled a lot of people, including the painter alfred munnings, president of the royal academy, who voiced his criticisms on bbc radio. (sir arthur munnings) the sculptors today are sinking away into a fashion. you saw these things exhibited in battersea park,

corn maze" east of san francisco -- in the livermore valley wine country -- to hoards of crazed kids and their parents. you're surrounded by eight, ten foot stalks of corn. so you lose your sense of direction very easily. they're having a field day exploring six acres of corn. it's a dead end this maze is only one of hundreds that open across the country each year. this one looks like a quarter, thanks to a corn maze expert who carves out the design months ahead of time. he sets this field into grids by using the rows that we plant on and then he flags it out. gets it all marked. and then he comes in and actually kills the corn with round up when it's about two inches tall. so it's already done basically when this corn is two, three inches out of the ground. they even install a bridge... which later becomes a big hit with the kids. this is cool! wow! how'd they get under there? for those who get hopelessly turned around, help is on hand. dan marciel is a partner in the farm who also plays "corn cop." they're completely lost. they don't know where they're at or what they're doing some
